For Immediate Release

STILLWATER -Students interested in strengthening research skills and preparing for their future academic needs should consider enrolling in LBSC 1011 this semester.

“This course teaches you how to use the Library and find and evaluate online resources for your coursework,” said David Oberherlman, coordinator of LBSC 1011.  “It helps students find the information they need to succeed academically, and gives them the tools to navigate in this information age.”

LBSC 1011 is designed to help students develop effective research techniques and become efficient using library resources. It will cover the Library's online catalog, electronic databases and the Internet.

For any student looking to fill an hour-elective, LBSC 1011 conveniently allows students to complete the course from the comfort of their own home. It is offered as a six-week, online course Jan. 31-March 4 and again March 28-April 29.

For those who prefer interaction with a professor, it is also offered as an eight-week, face-to-face course March 7-April 29.
